Yes I have used u-boot as a kernel. its very rough and not really a good
experience, at least in that you have to configure the vm the same as u-boot
There's uboot builds that work with qemu + arm vexpress, courtesy of Gerd:
But uboot isn't going to work with qemu-system-arm -M virt because uboot
doesn't have any virtio support
